Michigan State Spartans senior safety Demetrious Cox may have said it best following the Spartans loss to Wisconsin.

What all did Cox have to say?  Below are his comments to a few key questions along with video from his post game conversation with the media.

On how to bounce back after this game...

Well really it is just a mindset. We have to fight through the adversity. It's what we do. We will be alright. We will watch the film tomorrow, go over all of our mistakes and see the little things we did wrong. We'll get a lift in, work out and we will get our swagger back. We'll be alright.

 

On what happened after Wisconsin's fumble recovery...

I mean, obviously it was huge. We had come out all fired up, and we were ready to make a statement out there and then that happened. It's unfortunate. You can't lose the turnover battle. That's one thing that Coach [Mark] Dantonio stresses. It's the truth. I had an opportunity to have an interception and there was a whole bunch of stuff. We had to capitalize on that stuff and the offense has to have better control of the ball, too. 

 

On how tough it will be for them to get their swagger back...

It depends on the type of person you are. If you played well or you played bad, there's always the next play and the next game. We're looking to move forward. Our goals are still in front of us, though. There's no reason to hang back and hang our heads on this game. 

 

On if the team is shell shocked...

I wouldn't say we are shell shocked. I just feel there are little things. The inches did not go our way today. We just have to play better as a whole and come out with more of a chip next week. 

 

On what is his responsibility as a leader now...

Myself, Riley [Bullough] and a whole bunch of leaders on the team are going to be ready to come back and get everyone focused. We have to remain confident as well. We lost a game, suck it up. We have to get ready to play next week.
